Our friends are driving up from Carmel and we (in Oakland) want to meet them in the South Bay for good Chinese food (or other Asian). I know there are wonderful places in Milpitas or in Silicon Valley but it would be nice if we could find something further south.
I searched the board and got a few ideas; most of them seem to be neighborhood places, or simple mall places.
We want something a bit upscale -- on the order of China Village, or else, if it's a dive, very ethnically interesting.
Vietnamese might be good.
South of San Jose is good too (Morgan Hill, Gilroy).
